PCCW Charity Run: How You Can Make The Children Wishes Come True

It’s not just any charity run that you have seen before but the PCCW charity run is the only charity sporting event in Singapore that helps to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. I’m sure everyone has their own wish to either get something, be something or hope for something. Just like these children, they all have their own wishes too but it is definitely not an easy task for them to make their wishes come true on their own with the situation that they are in.

With that, the PCCW Charity Run is here to the rescue! And to make this charity run a successful one, they will need people like you and me to help make the children wishes come true and also help make a positive turning point in their lives. Don’t lose this chance on helping the children!

About PCCW Charity Run

Joining this type of charity may be new to you, and to some, it may not be. But fret not! PCCW Charity Run 2018 returns with its 5th edition! It will be your first memorable charity run and always be. Last year’s PCCW Charity Run 4th edition took place in the month of May and this year, it has been moved to a later month which will be taking place on 27 June 2018.

The flag-off for the PCCW Charity Run will be at Silver Leaf-Gardens by the Bay, 7 a.m. It is a one category race of 5km with no age limit. The early bird registration will be over on 18 May but if you miss the early bird period, there’s still the normal rate for you to save yourself a slot in the PCCW Charity Run.

Wish come true

Helping to grant the children wish is as easy as counting numbers. All you ever need to do to help them is just by joining the charity run and you have done a part of what you can do to help! To complete your part, you’ll just need to attend on the event day and start running! Easy isn’t it? The money that is collected from this charity event will then be donated to Make-A-Wish Singapore.

Perks to perk you up

Ever heard the phrase “Do good things and it’ll come back to you”? Just like the phrase, since you have decided to do a good deed by helping to make the children wishes come true, the PCCW Charity Run event will be handing out their great looking Newton Singlet, PCCW Global Charity Run Drawstring Bag and race pouch.

Don’t think that you’ll just be receiving those because once you have completed the run, you’ll also be receiving a medal and Newton finisher t-shirt! Isn’t that great? Well, if you think that it ends there, then you are wrong. Assuming you happen to be in top 3 placing, you’ll be receiving sponsored items from the event sponsors!

If you are in third placing, you’ll be receiving sponsored items worth of S$100 and if you are in second placing, it’ll be S$200. If you became the champion instead of being the 2nd or 1st runner-up, then you’ll also be receiving sponsored items worth of S$300!
